Plumas National Forest to begin reopening more recreation sites

The Plumas National Forest will provide additional developed recreational opportunities on Saturday, May 16.

Outdoors in Plumas, the contractor (concessionaire) responsible for managing many PNF developed recreation sites, will be opening additional sites in the coming weeks, including the larger campgrounds at Frenchman, Lake Davis and Antelope Lake; visit their website at:

In addition, check the forest website at or call the applicable ranger district during regular business hours from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday.

“We continue to recommend you recreate locally,” said Forest Supervisor Chris Carlton. “All visitors should practice self-sufficiency during visits to national forests. Recreating responsibly will help ensure access to recreational facilities, services and opportunities continues.”

Responsible recreation practices include:

  • Maintain at least six feet distancing from others.
  • Do not gather in groups and follow the latest guidance from officials.
  • Alert other trail users of your presence, and step aside to let others pass.
  • Pack out your trash, and leave with everything you brought in.
  • Services may not be available, plan accordingly.
